The primary threat will be damaging winds, although hail up to 1" in diameter and isolated tornadoes are possible.  The initial radar is rather quiet although there is a severe storm right now around Laconia, NH.

South of the Mass Pike should be ok through early evening.  Activity may organize into a convective complex after dark.  This complex would likely bring heavy rain and strong winds with it so keep tabs on the situation throughout the afternoon/evening.

If anything major happens I will update my post.
